Almost done...  I scratchbuilt an ore bunker for the ore house, added another lean-to and added timber cribbing along with a proper roof and dormer for the loading shed.  Still need a balcony and staircase along with more timber cribbing, but I think I can get 'er essentially done enough for voting on Monday.

This is about as far as it's practical to go before I need a hillside on which to plant it.  So I'm calling it so I can drive on to the next project.





Parts of two Grandt Line East Terrible Mills and one AHM freight depot plus a bunch of styrene parts.  The tarpaper is painter's tape and the cribbing is from Chooch.

This is the prototype after abandonment and after both the covered ore loading shed had been "unsheathed (probably as part of a wartime scrap metal drive)" and the ore house (the separate structure in my photos) had been dismantled.
